Star Trek USS Voyager 1:2700 scale by Martin Schultz

Here it is April already and I haven’t worked on a model since last November.  Sometimes that is how life goes.  I tried to restart an old project back then (Dragonheart vinyl figure) and after a week or two the motivation wore off.   Recently I was thinking about how to get started again and I […]
